Kind of late in the morning this year —
7 minutes after 6 am.
Last year it was soon after midnight.

I will NOT be up.
Way too early for I.

Plus 

MY LEAST FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR!

Days start getting shorter — and I hate that.

To I, it means Winter is on the way.

06:07 am Eastern in the USA — 10:07 am GMT.


Click to ENLARGE. From ‘timeanddate.com’, of course. Note, LONGEST day of the year, but days start getting shorter right away! Bummer.


Last  Two Year.

I just called up the Wolfeboro Chamber and checked. Yes, it is official. No Wolfeboro ‘First Night’ this year; i.e., December 31, 2015 — January 1, 2016.

And NO midnight fireworks!

Yikes!

Instead fireworks at 6:30 pm. Mitt Wept (I hope).

This is very sad.

Yes, folks like us are to blame. We did NOT attend the last two years, having been stalwarts for a few years previously. We wanted a BIGGER, BETTER show. Yikes.

Wolfeboro Inn and others are putting on their own events. But that is not the same.

As far as I am concerned double-whammy for Wolfeboro in 2016 ALREADY — and we haven’t even begun the year. First ‘Great Waters’ CANCELS the gala ‘Chorus & Orchestra’ event for 2016. Now this.

And the crazy thing is that it ISN’T  as if Wolfeboro, NH — the Capital of Heated Driveways in the Northeast — does NOT have the money to fund such events. Any of the folks that run the Heated Driveways — and I am sure that some of them have them on even now though the temperature is in the 40s — could easily finance First Night without even flinching.

Shame.

Well, there is ALWAYS Boston. I am no longer big on Portsmouth. Their First Night is ‘neither here nor there’. Just go to Boston.

I am glad to see that they have a Web presence this year and that the event is alive and ‘well’. We are big supporters of this event — the only other real ‘major’ “First Night” in New Hampshire being the bit more gala one in Portsmouth.

I know that management changed, for the first time in decades, last year and that this is still a ‘work in progress’ for the new crew. I also see that our own “Clearlakes Chorale” (for the first time that I am aware of) and our friend Dan Monahan’s “Lakes Region Chordsmen” have star-billing. That is great. Dan had already given me a heads up.

As an adopted Scot who takes Hogmanay very seriously (as one really should) I will just make this one observation. An event that ends by 10 pm on New Year’s Eve is not exactly “First Night” for the diehards and young at heart. Ideally I like fireworks (in the air and other varieties can come later) at Midnight. No Portsmouth does not have fireworks at midnight because of noise ordinances! Wolfeboro used to. 

I wish them all the best. They will fine tune it and refine it with time.

I was right.
Wolfeboro ‘First Night’ has NOTHING on the Web for 2014!

What they have is last year’s events and buttons.

That is official and confirmed.

I just called up the Wolfeboro Chamber of Commerce.

wolfe1stcontact

They admitted that there will be a NEW ‘Website’ and with 8 days to go it is still NOT UP.

Why folks around here have trouble doing Websites confounds me.
I can do a new Website, from scratch, in a couple of hours
and have done 4 in the last 5 weeks to prove that.

The Chamber says that they have PRINTED stuff and that
they will be mailing it shortly.

How cute! How provincial.

But, main thing. Don’t be duped by the old Website.

A map and events for Portsmouth 2014 First Night is, of course, available from their Website.

I put them together to give me a better idea of what is happening where … relative to each other.

You might find it useful too.

Portsmouth 2014 ‘First Night’
Dec. 1, 2013.



It is official, it is true and it is as it should be.

There will be a ‘First Night‘ in Wolfeboro for 2014, i.e., December 31, 2013 …

Yes, it is true that their Website, their Facebook or that of the Wolfeboro Chamber doesn’t mention that. They are still carrying 2012 and 2011 content.

But, I have checked.

We probably, breaking our tradition of the last few years, will NOT be going this year. The kids are older. We can venture further afield!

IF I find more details, I sure will post them.

Happy New Year, Wolfeboro.

Number of people we know …

The amazing, very personable Roderick Russell.

I kind of feel I need to be there to help him out as I did at Sandwich a couple of years ago.
He is good. Very good. But, he is better when I am on stage with him. What can I say?

Then they have the Beatles’s tribute group “All Together Now” that we saw this Summer at Wolfeboro. They were fun. Wouldn’t mind seeing them again.

World music & FINE folk music! Just music to my years.
We have been going to Wolfeboro ‘First Night’ for the last few years
BUT I doubt whether we will ever get any WORLD MUSIC in
the oldest Summer Resort in the U.S.

Not too keen about Fireworks at 7:30!

I like the Wolfeboro tradition of fireworks at midnight and one earlier at 7:30.
